Fast paced and gritty- but can probably make anyone uncomfortable

This is an exceptionally entertaining film, though even adults might have no idea what on earth is going on as the primary "heist" is something to do with property/land. The violence is rampant throughout (fists, guns, golf clubs, killer fish, and lots of blood) though if I remember correctly nobody but the Big Bad and a few no name characters actually die, lots of sex talk (one 6 second scene that is purely sound based which is an impressive feat, and one really weird scene where Russian gangsters prancing around in their underwear have tied and gagged a mostly clothed man to a bed, like a precursor to S andM) , lots of swearing, a heroin addict is a main character and I'm 99% everyone in this is drunk at least some of the time. That being said it's pretty impressive and the 16+ crowd should enjoy it.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking

hilarious lol

there was lots of laughs in rocknrolla, and i after i saw it, i thought to myself, it would be awesome if monty python made this lol, and even though i thought this was extremely funny, shaun of the dead is several times funnier, but both movies are equally funny anyway
